JinkoSolar is the largest solar panel manufacturer in the world in terms of cumulative global shipments boasting accolades for the highest quality and performance. JinkoSolar also offers different Energy Storage System solutions for different application scenarios, helping to improve the power supply structure in Africa.

The Jinko C&I Energy Storage System is designed for community mini-grids which can be customised according to needs on the ground. The system integrates battery, PCS, DC/DC, switch cabinet, fire-fighting equipment, air-conditioner, EMS and etc. The high integration reduces the complex process of the project design, selection and related installation cost.

JinkoSolar promotes DC coupling topology to propose energy storage solution, which is more efficient, less solar curtailment and less installation and system design cost.

Elum Energy is an energy and automation company that supplies monitoring and control solutions for solar standard & hybrid energy systems. Their energy management systems (ePowerControl) are turn-key, plug & play, brand-agnostic, and suitable for solar power generation facilities coupled with diesel generators and/or energy storage. Elum also provides a SCADA platform (cloud based ePowerMonitor or local with ePowerControl SCADA) designed for Asset Managers and O&M teams to report and improve the performance of energy sites through data intelligence. Elum Energy currently has over 500 sites in more that 40 countries equipped with Elum’s solutions.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
